  1. I just made this. I didn’t have regular flour, just coconut flour. It was nummy! just be careful because it is hot and you want to eat it all right away.

  2. Wow! This was my first recipe using fresh cherries, and it’s easily one of the best desserts I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend this (: I like a lot of topping so I quadrupled the crumble recipe.
